Love the organizers and styling so much that I bought a second color. I may love the green even more than the crimson! Traveling with it now in Kauai. The only cons for me are that my 1st bag got a few scuffs on it from two recent months in Europe. I’d love to fix these and prevent them with my new bag. The 2nd con is that when I have a small MacBook Air and a pair of shoes in their compartments, the available space in the main compartment is compromised. Even with those cons, the Birdie is way more functional than any bag from a comparable brand.
I just love this bag and I get so many compliments on it!
Honestly, it's fabulous. I am using it for the gym and couldn't ask for a better bag. Thinking of buying another.
Very nice purse. I would love to see it in some light neutral colors! Thanks
Hello Jean! We are launching a nude JOJO early next year! Stay Tuned :)
I had been looking for the perfect work tote. One that would be big enough yet not too bulky. This fits the bill and then some. EMMA Traveler 39 black smooth is so classy and beautiful. It's an eye catcher. I am thinking about getting the red one. I am hooked on JEMMA!. I just ordered the JACKIE duffle bag.
Hello Rose! We're so happy to hear you love your EMMA 39, it was built specially for women like you!
I needed a laptop bag to take to Europe, big enough to fit my purse going through security, but I wanted it to look like a purse, not a bag. The Jules was perfect, and even better since it could convert from a crossbody bag to a backpack!. But I discovered it was even 'betterer,' because I could also unzip the outside picket and slip it over my suitcase handle. Geez, this bag had everything. I also loved all the pockets - I used the bottle pockets at the sides for my glasses cases, and there were plenty of pockets inside for various cords and earbuds, and room for a paperback and my makeup case along with my purse. Totally thrilled with the quality nylon fabric and the saffiano leather straps and trim - very well done. There were so many little thoughtful things with this bag - the metal purse feet, the laptop sleeve, the eyeglass case, just to name a few. I feel as though the designer mind-melded with me and figured out exactly what I wanted and needed. Thank you!
This is the perfect size and compartments for my needs of cc slots, cell phone, a little bit of touch-up makeup, change and cash.
This bag is perfect for carrying your laptop and other essentials. I got it specifically because it could be used as a backpack or regular bag and found its size and organizational pockets perfect. It lays nicely on your back. The leather ihas a nice feel to it. I recommend this bag.
Love the look and function of this bag! Looks good as crossbody too!
When I received the EMMA 32, it was a fantastic tote. But it was too small. I wanted to upgrade. I contacted JEMMA by email. As requested, they sent me an invoice for the difference between the Emma 32 and Emma 39 and provided a postage-paid label to return my original purchase. They immediately shipped the larger tote.
In the meantime, I bought the JOJO purse and I’m obsessed with both.
After months of research for a new work handbag, I finally stumbled upon this gem of a bag. I knew I wanted something big enough to fit my laptop, but not so large that it looks like I’m carrying my life with me at all time (which I do, but I don’t want it to LOOK like I do). The laptop sleeve is a tight fit for my 13 inch laptop, but I knew the JEMMA 39 would be a little bigger than I wanted, so I’ve made it work.
The bag is clearly well made, and while it was a bit of a splurge for me, it’s held up well so far to the amount of weight I put in her. The shoulder strap is perfect for when I completely fill her up and need to give my arm a break from all that weight.
I’ve gotten so many compliments on her so far and feel so put together whenever I’m carrying her around. You seriously can’t go wrong with this bag!
This bag is the perfect size for me and had become my fave date night purse - big enough to hold the essentials plus a few extras while looking sleek and pulled together but not trendy in that here today gone tomorrow kind of way. My husband even made a few comments about it and he never notices things like that. I'm definitely considering getting the other color
Hi Julia, we're so happy to hear you love your JOJO! It is indeed a forever purse :)
It is rare for me to leave any kind of product review. I view the practice as gauche. But an exception will I make for this bag. This bag. It is mighty as it is glamorous. It is chic as it is practical. It has elevated my life or gone with me as my life elevated. I am not sure which. It was my first semester as a professor. The bag came just in time for my first class. I felt so at peace slipping my necessaries into the compartments. You thought of everything. This bag is working for my life- making it easier, mor streamline. I love the way the black and white leather looks. The vanilla tone of the white is very 1960s mod. I feel like a James Bondian babe walking around the train stations with this bag. It goes with any outfit. I am thrilled about it's capacities to attach to my rolling suitcase.
I will add that I looked all over the city for a bag before finally finding this Jemma 39. I sought in leather shops and bags shops. To no avail. Perhaps a bag was practical, but it was ugly. Or a bag was beautiful, but it lacked all sturdiness.
If you are wondering weather or not to purchase this bag, the answer is yes. I, a Virgo, did leagues of research. This is the most fabulous model in our world. Do not hesitate to transform your life with its divine powers.
Hi Melanie, thank you for taking the time to write a review and sharing the love! We are so glad to hear you love your EMMA 39 as it was designed and built specifically for women like you in mind. Thank you for being a JEMMAGirl!
I live this as an everyday purse. Small enough to carry every day, large enough for a light work day. My favorite of my Jemma bags. Do wish the color had a little less brown tone but still cute.
ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. CHIC. CLASSY. ROOMY. STYLISH. THE INSIDE INTERIOR DESIGN/PATTERN IS UNIQ6!!!!
I like the old school quailty fabric easy to clean and very roomy.
Gorgeous bag with many ways to organize. First day I used it, I received many women ogling over it. I look forward to it breaking in a bit. It is highly recommended by me!
I love my croc Himalayan white bag! It is elegant and beautiful.
We're so happy to hear you love your EMMA 32 Petite Nini! It is indeed a stunning one of a kind piece!
Wow, what an amazing tote! Sleek, sophisticated, and highly functional! Would definitely buy in more colors!
I received my Jenna 39 bag a few months ago. The black and cream looks very classy for a professional work bag. The quality is great. I am waiting for it to be available in Croc Himalayan White.
I got the Himalaya Croc Leather colorway, and it looks rich. I love the functionality of the pockets. I "think" I could get my 13-inch laptop in there. It will probably be too tight, though. I'm trying to avoid buying the Emma 37 just for the laptop. Otherwise, I love it and think you shouldn't sleep on this colorway. Get it!
I purchased the CARRIE Tote for my beach vacations but realized it is much more than just a beach bag - given how lightweight and spacious it is with multiple pockets I have conveniently started using it as a work tote as well and its perfect! Love that it is 100% sustainable as well.
I absolutely love this bag. The quality of the material to the organization features definitely make this my go to daily purse.
This bag is so stunning, I bought two - one in each color, the black and blush cream (pink). My thinking was that I would pick my favorite, and return one. Well, be careful with this strategy, because in my case, I'm keeping both. This is a very well-made, sophisticated and stylish bag. It's also the perfect size, not too small or large - fits everything I need, i.e., wallet, phone, comb, tiny make-up bag. I can't wait to take them with me to NYC when I visit - the cross body strap also makes it perfect for traveling (and, when I remove the strap, it's the perfect bag for a wedding I'll be attending). These handbags are of the highest quality and made to last.
Very nice bag. Look elegant and chic
